Quality Summer Days

Published on August 7, 2012,

The past weekend was exactly my idea of summer.  Friends, lakes, bikes, parties, heat… it was awesome.  Last week, I was down in Salt Lake giving a presentation for The North Face at a distributor meeting before the Outdoor Retail Show, which was a cool in-run for the weekend.  Before this year I hadn’t done any public speaking but now after a few kicks at it, I feel like I am starting to figure it out, and it’s pretty sweet.  Salt Lake was one of those real business style trips, a day traveling, spend the following day shedding a little insight on the new North Face duds, sleep for a couple hours, and jump on a plane and bump home. Just under 48hr round trip.  A quick and dirty couple days but it wasn’t short on fun.  The North Face Crew are a bunch of characters so it’s always a good time.  I flew home to nab the nuptuials of two of my good childhood friends.  Like most most weddings it turned into a make-shift reunion, which naturally goes hand in hand with a few beverages and entertaining antics a plenty.

Yesterday it was back to the bike.  Scott Secco needed a few pick-up shots for his new video, so we made the most of the morning, crushed it out, and finished the day off with an “Epic!” Lake Jump session (Video coming soon).  Love this summer business!
